So. Many. Bloggers. I read so many moving blogs and I want to tell you about every them but I don't know where to start. With this one I suppose. She had me hooked by the first sentence. Okay, it was really the second sentence...this quote- The criteria for coming to Jesus is weariness. Come overwhelmed with life. Come with your wandering mind. Come messy.” ~ Paul E. Miller, A Praying Life
Do I get that because I feel weary too, do you suppose? Do I feel it because my mind keeps wandering when I pray and I have to drag my wandering thoughts back again and again from where they've gone?? Go read her stuff for yourself and see if you don't get hooked on her blog too. Sheesh! Just what I need! Another blog for me to get hooked on! Maybe it's time for me to weed out the blogs that no longer satisfy, the ones that no longer post what it is I am supposed to be reading. The blogs that have lost their meaning for me. I am liking the strong Christian Women blogs that I have been reading as of late. Gives me a feeling of empowerment. Makes me feel stronger, more clear minded, more in tune with what it is that I am supposed to be doing with my life. I like how these women are on fire for Jesus and make no excuses. I like the sound of their voices being upraised in our society. I like how other people are listening to them and what they have to say about Christ and Christianity and the church. I like how they make me feel about myself; forgiven, redeemed, normal and whole. I am slowly learning to use my own voice. I am still timid and shy. Still fearful that as a Jesus Freak I will lose my friends and my credibility 'cuz I am now a "Bible Thumper". And isn't that an awful statement to make??
